Comments25/02/2017 #2 Paul Walters@Ken Boddie Great piece as always . Now my wise Aussie guru perhaps you could enlighten me as to a curious 'architectural' phenomenon that is Darwin. Now Darwin as a city I saved until last on my travels around the big brown land. I have to say ( apart from the sublime sunsets and the people ) I was vaguely disappointed !!! Why. Well it struck me as odd that the city seems to have been built with its 'back' to the sea so the whole city seems to look inward rather than facing the magnificent vistas that are afforded by looking outward ! Was this due to the 1965 cyclone Tracy cyclone ? Would be interested to know .

When owners and managers had a full array of moderation tools, when members could be screened, when members could sign up for email notices of new comments in discussions in which they had a strong interest, when... well, I saw very strong results. Many, many great conversations and a lot of professional and industry sharing. Very strong view numbers, as well. That was before the introduction of the long-post publishing platform. I think Milos is spot on in his comment #9. IMHO.25/02/2017 #15 Robert CormackGood post, @Jim Murray. I think we've all been through the LinkedIn cathedral, hearing the bells but not seeing the parishioners. The numbers are much better here (LinkedIn practically dropped off entirely). I still post there on occasion, but I essentially stick to beeBee, Medium and Quora. The rest feel like I'm at the wrong party (Tumblr, particularly). I also see a greater sense of decency here; meaning people aren't here with an axe to grind (like WriterBeat) or a site trying to encourage argument and bad manners (WriterBeat). We don't have to agree on everything (thinking Phil here), but at least we do it in a (hopefully) constructive fashion. If you really want to tussle, Phil is happy to accommodate. Thanks for posting.25/02/2017 #9 AnonymousFrom the beginning I proposed that the LI professional group model should be applied in the case of beBee. Designing of professional groups with the complete moderation in accordance with the LI professional group model (which is still great, even now) on beBee is the one of a major driving forces for the further and unstoppable success of this platform (and many new members). Thanks @Jim Murray.24/02/2017 #4 Phil FriedmanI concur completely, Jim. Both about Sam's qualifications and insights. As you well know, I have, for some time now, been advocating for beBee to provide tools for managing hives that are similar to what LI group owners had when they first started building groups years ago. And I believe with you that, with those tools available, the smart marketing move would be to go after the owners of the large, strong groups. For many of those owners put in thousands of hours building their groups, only to have the legs knocked out from under them. Since LI obviously set out consciously to destroy those groups, it's not at this point in time a matter of poaching. Only a matter of smart marketing. But it would have to be done right. And if @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood are smart about it, they will engage the help and counsel of some of us who operated substantial groups on LI and who still have ties to serious group owners there. Man, what a way it would be to build business- and industry-specific hives here on beBee, not to mention boost general membership. Great piece, Jim. Thanks.

The SINGLE Thing I Did To Launch 25 Years of Small Business Success
I suspect that the decisions that make enduring impact on small business success are not the huge mega hairy ones that you know are important at the time.
I suspect it's the smaller ones that, at the time, don't seem significant at all.
Such is the case for me.
Here's the decision I made that paved the way for 25 years of success.
Comments25/02/2017 #7 Robert BacalThank you @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Milos Djukic and @Christine Stevens In a way this year brings closure to my travelling to do seminars and conference speaking. In that sense I have retired.
Travel is a pain, and going to the U.S. is know even more unpalatable with immigration officials able to exercise all kinds of capricious stuff, and I've had hassles almost every time I've flown there to work.
I consider myself semi-retired, but may eventually return to writing books, and I'm still running my "website empire".
There's new freedom because I feel now I can share some of the strategies I've used that previously, I've felt I should keep to myself, for business reasons.
now i have to figure out what free giveaways and stuff I can do this year to celebrate.
- Producer24/02/2017HOW TO TAME ANXIETY - part 1There are many emotions we need to learn how to handle and reduce. Such as disappointment, anger, resentment, frustration and anxiety - an emotion that most of us feel very uncomfortable with. And yet anxiety is common and unable us to reasoning...
Comments25/02/2017 #10 Phil FriedmanObviously, this may not work for everyone nor, for that matter, more than a few, but when I feel myself getting anxious, I ask very consciously "What could be the worst possible thing that could happen?" And if the answer is something other than fatal, I remind myself that, one way or another, it can be managed.
FWIW, I have also determined in my life not to worry and stress over things that have not yet happened or not yet even imminent. My experience is that significantly more than 50% of potential problems do not ever come to pass. So if you stress over all possibilities, however remote, you will spend more than half your time worrying about nothing. And even in those cases where bad consequences do come to pass, following this path means that you eliminated a lot of useless worrying anyway. Cheers!25/02/2017 #9 Cyndi wilkinsWhen my daughter was very young, she used to describe those butterflies as a "bonkie in her tummy." She was born with an exaggerated sensory response to sudden noises...I can't tell you how many birthday parties we had to leave prematurely because someone popped a balloon. Her anxiety was rather extreme, however we have engaged in many of these techniques and quite a few modifications of our own to avoid medicating her...at times that too has been necessary. But sometimes, we just had to let her cry it out...I realized that children dealing with such powerful emotions are like open conduits to all the sensory input around them....they are unable to mute it as we tend to as adults. When they are at school among so many other children with their chaotic energy it is like being thrown into a snake pit! My little girl would come home sometimes after school and just lie across my chest for an hour or so and sob uncontrollably...Now, at thirteen, she's too cool to have me pick her up at the front door! Fortunately, most of the time given the proper coping skills, they grow out of it;-)24/02/2017 #5 Emilia M. Ludovino#3 Hi dear @Ian Weinberg! Sorry for tagging you but I always like the piece of knowledge you bring to the articles you read. I admire your work and the way you talk about it and because I know I'll learn something with you, hence, I tagged you. Have a blessed weekend!24/02/2017 #4 Emilia M. Ludovino#2 Thank you dear @Ali Anani for taking your time to read my article and leave your comment full of wisdom. I like the way you deal with a angry moment. I focus on my breathing and the image of my Buddhist teacher - that immediately brings me a place of serenity. And because emotions are contagious our peaceful reaction reflects back into the other person. Have a wonderful weekend!24/02/2017 #3 Ian WeinbergThanks @Emilia M. Ludovino for sharing another insightful appraisal of an important subject. The problem with anxiety and it's nastier big brother, 'panic', is that the amygdala (the seat of fear, anxiety, panic and rage) mediates its effects by secreting adrenaline-noradrenaline and cortisol, which in turn stimulate the amygdala. So you end up with an amygdala 'locked-in' spiral where one is a sustained victim of flight/fight. The only way that you can wind out of this spiral is through a 'break-state' - a diversion of attention, as you correctly point out. The second factor conspiring against us in the anxiety state is that the somatic symptoms of anxiety are invariably more forboding than the thing that actually triggered the fear in the first place. Hence when we administer Beta-blockers, by blocking the symptoms of anxiety but not the mind state itself, we observe a marked improvement in the overall anxiety state.24/02/2017 #2 Ali AnaniYou offer a great recipe for dealing with anxiety @Emilia M. Ludovino. I enjoyed all. I liked what you wrote "5 - Focus On Something Else: Distracting yourself from an intense focus on anxiety can also help". This is exactly what I do if somebody is talking angrily. I look the person in the eyes, nod my eyes occasionally let the person know I care and listen.In fact, I don't listen for two minutes and send my mind thinking about other issues. In two minutes anger cools down and then I may be truly listen, observe and think. It seems your prescription applies to anxiety, stress and other negative emotions.

Now I need to get a cat outta the bag;) I have had my share of silence, i must now exercise some poetic licence;)
Allow me a few words on awareness and mindfulness. Awareness is the door, for perception to receive its guests - the sensations, courtesy the senses. Meditation is the stilling of the senses - in a neutral, quiet environment, that automatically clears the mind of its thoughts. You are then aware of only being aware. An emptied / empty mind is a great medium, primed for the highest perception the moment our senses are deployed through acts of intense concentration. Concentration is often done to visualise something when it is not accompanied by physical action. When you visualise with the greatest of clarity and detail, you create. You enable the thought to become a thing. You materialise that into your life in just a matter of some time. But then again, going back, Awareness is always the first condition. The more aware / mindful you are, the higher the quality of meditation or concentration, and the greater the success. ;)24/02/2017 #18 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#13 thank you @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman grateful for your comments.24/02/2017 #14 Preston 🐝 Vander VenI totally agree with mediation. Yet, as a christian I feel mediation has a more powerful meaning.
Biblical mediation is not even slightly linked to transcendental meditation or yoga; you don't become detached in your mind from thoughts or images when mediating on the word. The object of Eastern Meditation practices is to focus on emptying the mind of thoughts or images. Biblical meditation is never a state that your mind becomes detached from thought or image. In fact, it is to focus the mind MORE on a particular subject. The objective for biblical meditation is to make the conceptual nature of the Word of God a reality in your life.
God promises good success and a prosperous way to a person who meditates on the Word of God. God instructed Joshua, that this Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. "For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success." Joshua 1:8
You must first spend time investigating what the Bible says on your topic of interest. The Bible always reveals what God's purposes, plans, thoughts, and will are for humanity. You personally need to investigate what the Word of God says about the subject you are interested in.
Next you will need to collect all the scriptures related to the topic you are examining. Don't just gather scriptures from the Bible that support your personal perspective, but collect ALL the biblical scriptures related to your topic of interest.
At this point, actually begin to practice biblical meditation by thinking about God's Word in your mind. You might want to say the scriptures out loud to yourself. Fill your mind and your mouth with the Word of God. Meditating will increase your confidence or level of faith in God and His Word.
This is the objective of Biblical Meditation. A believer meditates on the Word of God so that Faith [confidence] is produced in the heart.24/02/2017 #13 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanPerception can lead us in many directions, some good and some not so good. I prefer the good and try to be mindful of which direction I take. Using our senses to enjoy even the little things life has to offer is worth the time.

To realize we are never alone.24/02/2017 #11 Robin BartonThere was a time when I did not believe in meditation or mindfulness-I thought I had all the skills I needed to cope with life, until for the first time in my career, I was laid off from a job that paid very well and I loved. Budget cuts...but still, I was devastated. At that time, I couldn't see the positives. I wouldn't see the positives. But I knew I had to calm myself down and focus. One minute of meditation a day was all I could handle, but it did something in my brain and my heart. Not physically, but mentally of course. I extended the time every few weeks to go longer. Truly, I can only sit like that for about 10-15 minutes max, but I know it helped me get through that crappy time and build my confidence back up to get a new job. Thanks Liesbeth, for writing about mindfulness. It truly is helpful and not just some new age crock!24/02/2017 #10 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.oh my God @Deb 🐝 Helfrich the chocolate link you added, leads to deliciousness! We are lucky to have you around. I so adore your comments, many thanks!24/02/2017 #9 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis is such an interesting buzz, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. - I would have included you in my hall of fame of people I know who were present to their perceptions - your stories are marvels of seeing & describing life in surprising and therefore enlightening ways. And yet, there is always something new to be learned, and the world is full of inspiring teachers who can open our mindstate to how contemporary life causes us to sleep-walk - at a very fast pace.
I call my state of overwhelm mind-full-of-itself-ness. The racing, repetitive thoughts keep my mind occupied only with what it needs to process, rather than having the ability to be drawn into the moment, out into the world via my senses - the neighborhoods were delight can lurk.
I am confused by chocolate ice cream. Utterly. In order to really savor chocolate, our mouth needs to be warm and the solids need to begin melting. This may be the most controversial thing I've ever said, but chocolate ice cream is a travesty concocted to keep people from understanding their own tastebuds. I myself am tremendously partial to Askinosie Chocolate: https://www.askinosie.com/
There is a lovely paradox in the way that sometimes conversations with other people, or a small group class can help us become aware of our own internal states and the complexity of the experiences that we take for granted when we rush about our overly scheduled days.

Comments25/02/2017 #47 Paul Walters@Ali Anani Once again a gem of a piece! After living on a tropical island for the last five years I discovered something from the Balinese. They live not for today but for the moment!!! Their philosophy is that , yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a mystery so live for the moment. All well and good and a philosophy I truly admire but perhaps the town planners should abandon this practise as with the increasing amount of traffic on the roads there is not a lot of 'forward planning' Oh well I guess we cant have it all!24/02/2017 #45 Ali Anani#44 Great observations are there in your comment. I loved the way you dear @John Rylance described the mirrors as possibilities of problems may attack us from all directions and the need to keep the mirrors clean. Yes, time doesn't move linearly if we consider it as a river.24/02/2017 #44 John RylanceTides ebb and flow, there are high and low tides, for this reason it might be a mistake to assume the tide of time is a constant forward movement. The flotsam and jetsam of life can stay with us, it may go never to return, or we may need to ensure we deal with it successfully if it does return. To pick up on your analogy of car mirrors, we need them all, problems or good things can come at us from any angle, so we need to see in all directions, so that we can embrace or reject them accordingly.
Yes we can't go back in time, but we can (with rear mirrors) stop the past catching up with us.24/02/2017 #42 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYour comment, Ali, "If we only take the value of the present time things may look quite different from the future. When the future arrives it shall leave little room for correction" has value not only in our personal lives but in our businesses. Time after time we've seen companies planning only for profits today; failing to see the 'big picture' of tomorrow when those plans could eventually topple their organization.
